Here's the list I'm taking to a 2000 point tournament tomorrow. It's the last hurrah for my FLGS Games and Gizmos since its closing at the end of the month
Tallarn Brigade Detachment: Alpha Company, 7th Battalion, Tallarn 23rd Light Infantry Regiment
-Captain Scheherazade, powerfist, plasma pistol, Aquila
-Captain Al'Rahem, power sword, plasma pistol, Dagger
-Captain Mustafa, tank commander, "Death Wish," Leman Russ, heavy bolter, 2 plasma cannons
Scheherazade will support troopers in my deployment zone, Al'Rahem will outflank with Blue Platoon. I'll make Mustafa into a "commissar" tank and he'll buff morale in my deployment zone.
-Alpha Company Command Squad, regimental standard, 2 sniper rifles
-Desert Scimitars Special Weapons Squad, 3 plasma guns
Mecca will advance with Gold Platoon. Alpha Company will provide morale support in my deployment zone. The Scimitars SWS will outflank with Blue Platoon.
-Red Platoon, 3 infantry squads of 10 troopers, 3 lascannons, 3 plasma guns
-Gold Platoon, 3 infantry squads of 10 troopers, 3 missile launchers, 3 plasma guns, 3 plasma pistols
-Blue Platoon, 3 infantry squads of 10 troopers, 3 heavy bolters, 3 plasma guns, 3 plasma pistols
Red Platoon sets up a base of fire in my deployment zone. Gold Platoon advances to midfield to gain board control and grab objectives. Blue Platoon outflanks.
-Blue 1, scout sentinel, autocannon, sentinel chainsaw
-Blue 2, scout sentinel, autocannon, sentinel chainsaw
-Blue 3, scout sentinel, autocannon, sentinel chainsaw
-Desert Dogs, 8 rough riders
-Desert Mombas, heavy weapons squad, 3 mortars
-"Faith and Metal," Leman Russ, 3 heavy bolters
-"Emperor's Champion," Leman Russ, 3 heavy bolters
Tallarn Spearhead Detachment
-Colonel Khomeini, powerfist
-Liaison Officer Lieutenant Zaim, Master of Ordnance
-"In Nomine Imperator," Manticore, heavy bolter
-"Slaughterer," Basilisk, heavy bolter
-"Vengeance," Basilisk, heavy bolter
Total=2,000 points; 13 command points; 107 infantry, 8 cavalry, 6 tanks, 3 walkers
The fluff for this list is that a standard Tallarn 23rd infantry company (3 platoons of 3 squads) has been reinforced with some support elements. Captain Scheherazade's force is reinforced by a Russ squadron from the Cadian 9th Armored Regiment and a self-propelled artillery section from the Valhallan 337th Artillery Regiment. Both the Cadian and Valhallan vehicles have been temporarily repainted in Tallarn colors, a not uncommon practice when units are placed on long term temporary duty to another regiment. Scheherazade is also supported by units from the 23rd: walkers and cavalry from the regimental recon company and a mortar squad from 7th Battalion's heavy weapons company.
Sadly, I wasn't able to finish up my stormtroopers in time for this tournament. I'll definitely finish them up by the end of the month though.
Also, I got in a fun game against bugs this week. It was a maelstrom mission. On Turn 1 he flooded the board with gribbles which denied my outflanking and deepstriking assets places in which to deploy. An excellent strategy which got my Tyranid player the win. He was a great sport and I hope to see him at this weekend's tournament.
Here are some images from the game:
Red Platoon Squad and Leman Russ watch a Devilgaunt squad pour forth from a Tyranid drop pod, called a "Tyrannocyte"?
Stormtroopers capture Objective 4
A Carnifex chows down on members of Blue Platoon
Stormtrooper Sergeant overwatches against a Tyranid Hive Tyrant, he missed
An impressive old school model, a Haruspex?, chews on some stormtroopers. This model was great! And from the front he looked like he was smiling. I guess you'd be happy too if you were a Nid monster and you got too eat your fill of humans.
The left flank holds (the center and right flank had collapsed)
Enjoy the photos!
